佛教提出六道...

佛教提出六道:天道、阿修羅道、人道、畜牲道、餓鬼道和地獄道。每一道分別由六種執著所造成:驕傲、嫉妒、慾望、愚疑、食慾和嗔恨

看看我們週遭的世界,再看看我們的內心,就知道六道是真實不虛的。他們存在的方式,是我們下意識地將煩惱投射出去,六道因此具體成形,而界定了各道的形式、樣貌、氣氛和內容。

六道也存在於我們的內心裡。在我們的身心系統之中,存在各種煩惱的種子和習性,只看環境的影響和我們選擇的生活方式,就隨時準備好發芽成長。

When You Believe

When You Believe
by Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemed like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

In times when all your hope is gone
And you go through life afraid
In your heart there lies a hopeful song
That is there to guide the way
And all the hurt and all the pain
You soon will learn was not in vain
For all your prayers, they will be heard
They'll come to pass through faith

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will,
You will when you Believe!
